ACCESSIBILITY

At eaton manor

At Eaton Manor we often accommodate up to four generations in one cottage, and therefore we realise the importance of making our cottages as accessible as possible to all guests.

If anyone in your group has particular access requirements, we welcome the opportunity to show you around before booking.

Cottages Recommended for Accessibility

We’re Here to Help

When we respond to an enquiry or take a booking, we enquire about the requirements of each group. On occasions, we suggest alternative cottages which may better suit the group’s needs e.g. downstairs bedrooms, walk-in showers etc.

We understand how difficult it is for guests to bring everything they might need for their children or for those with reduced mobility, and so we try and provide as much as we can to make life a bit easier when staying at Eaton Manor.
